In the United Kingdom, by all modern metrics, the coronavirus epidemic is in retreat. According to the latest estimates from the British Census Bureau, based on extensive population-based screening, the number of people infected with Coronavirus in England – by far the most populous country in the United Kingdom – could currently reach 160,200.
This means that out of every 340 people, one person is infected, which means that about 0.29% of the population has the Coronavirus in their bodies.
The ONS calculation methodology a month ago would have had 481,300 infected people in England. According to a study conducted at the time, 0.88 percent of the English population was infected with the Coronavirus at the time, which is now less than a third of the infection rate in the active population in England a month ago.
According to the latest calculations from the UK government’s Standards Scientific Advisory Board (SAGE), the breed has a rate of R between 0.6 and 0.9 across the UK.
The higher appreciation level rose slightly since it was still 0.8 last week, but both ends of the discretionary range are still below the critical level 1.
The new estimate shows that ten infected people transmit the coronavirus infection to an average of 6 to 9 other people, which means that the rate of spread of the epidemic is also slowing down with this measure.
